Hogan, The Ancestry of Anna Shaylor Wife of Thomas Coleman http://www.hogans3.org/shaylor.htm Note: The early members of the Shaylor family in America spelled their name in several ways (Shailer, Shayler, Shaylor, etc.). All, however, were pronounced with the long a. Shailerville, Connecticut and Shalerville, Ohio were both named for members of the Shaylor family. Anna Shaylor's father, Ephraim, was apparently the first of the line to spell his name Shaylor. This account of the ancestry of Anna Shaylor has been compiled from the following sources:
. 1. A genealogy of five generations of descendants of Thomas Shaylor from a compilation by Harrison Shaylor, published in Volume 4, Number 4 (March 1972) of the Connecticut Nutmegger (pages 532-541). This account does not list the last three children of Ephraim Shaylor--one of whom was Anna Shaylor--who were baptized together in Haddam, Connecticut in 1756.
2. A Supplement to the Shaylor Genealogy, by Ms. Jean Rumsey, published in Volume 5. Number 1 (June 1972) of the Connecticut Nutmegger (pages 73-75).
3. A manuscript by L.B. Barbour entitled "The Descendants of Thomas Shailer of Haddam," now in the Manuscript Collection of the Connecticut Historical Society. This account does list Ephraim's last three daughters--including Anna--and mentions that Anna married Thomas Coleman.
4. A manuscript by H.W. Brainard, copied from Rollin A. Tyler's collection on the Shailer family, which is also in the Manuscipt Collection of the Connecticut Historical Society. Anna Shaylor and her two sisters, Sarah and Hannah--the last three children of Ephraim Shaylor and Eunice Wright--are named. All three were baptized on 12 September 1756 in Haddam, Connecticut.
5. The vital records of Bolton, Connecticut, and Vernon, Connecticut.
6. The records of the Congregational Church of Bolton, Connecticut which show the Thomas Coleman married Anna Shaylor on 25 November 1766. Text: He married (1) Elizabeth Ackley, the daughter of Nicholas Ackley, who died between 20 March 1697 and 5 January 1698.
